Aesthetic considerations have influenced the management of dental maladies in varying degrees for many years. The patient awareness and expectations have increased recently to the point that less than optimal aesthetics are no longer an acceptable outcome. An essential goal of the treatment is the longterm stability of the result; for this to be achieved, the integrity of the dentogingival junction must be respected, and the dental restorations and the periodontium must be in harmony. This case report deals with root canal treatment of the fractured tooth, followed by atraumatic extrusion of the tooth by using a periotome and stabilization of the tooth to a required level by temporary splinting, followed by its final restoration. The outcome of the treatment within a short duration has very good aesthetic results.
